Emergency Department Risk Management Program

US Acute Care Solutions has achieved exceptional, industry-leading results in malpractice risk management and patient safety. Our proactive risk management program brings together nationally recognized experts in integrated acute care and medical malpractice to develop essential risk management strategies.

To help prevent patient injuries and deaths, we diligently collect and analyze reliable patient safety information. We use this outcome data analysis to uncover the core malpractice risks in our practice and address those risks with focused education and clinical tools. This data-based, targeted approach helps to identify medico-legal risks before they become medico-legal cases and protects our patients from harm.

FailSafe 24/7 on-call system

The USACS FailSafe program provides clinicians with 24/7 access to experienced senior physicians via smartphone app. FailSafe decreases risks and ensures our clinicians are never alone in managing a potentially risky situation.

Risk retention group partnership

Our own risk retention group gives us better control over the cost of medical malpractice insurance in an unpredictable market when compared to commercial insurance. It also gives us better control over claims defense. We decide when, and if, to settle so you can keep doing the excellent work you do.

One-of-a-kind-lawsuit management

Even the most compliant medical risk management behaviors may not be able to prevent all malpractice claims. Our claims management program ensures clinicians receive support, and expert legal representation. In addition, USACS provides all of its clinicians going through a claim with a peer mentor to assist them in coping with mental and emotional stress of litigation.
